The youngest baby to ever start walking was only six months old when he took to his feet and walked - he couldn't even crawl!

Xavier King's parents were astounded when he took his first steps so early.  With his arms stretched out in front of him to keep his balance, he toddles across the room at about 6 foot at a time.

His parents had a feeling he would be a fast learner when it came to mobility as Xavier was sitting up at three months old.  Most babies begin to crawl at about 6 months and will pull to standing at about 9 months.  By 18 months most are walking although it can take longer for no reason at all!

However, it has actually caused the parents a little concern as they need to be nearby at every moment to make sure he doesn't get into any harm.  A play pen has proved very useful indeed.  His parents have suggested that the bouncy chair they had for their son may have contributed to his leg and muscle strength.  He loved the chair and would happily bounce in it.

Early walking is often said to be hereditary however neither of Xavier's parents walked particularly early.  They will now spend most of their time running behind him to make sure he is always in their sight!
